January 24th Aquarius is given even more of a spotlight as we have a powerful New Moon which helps break away the old and bring in the new. This is where those big changes are thought of, those intentions are set, and our goal-plan for the year ahead is set into stone.
This is a gift, to help us break out of a rut and to bring in new energy for thought-patterns that are more aligned with our bigger vision for the year – our goals, intentions, and focus is drawn towards a more authentic way of living.
We are inspired to think outside of the box, to break-free from old habits that had kept us prisoner to defense-mechanisms and roadblocks that were self-created. In opposition to Uranus, which is home to Aquarius, but is currently residing in Taurus, we are driven to incorporate that need for change into our lives.
The New Moon in Aquarius also reaches further than just within us, but how we can become our most authentic selves so to benefit humanity, as Aquarius is the humanitarian and governs our social influences. This is a time to consider who is truly our friends, and if we are a good friend as well – basically to reach deep down within ourselves to consider the statement – be the change you want to see in the World.
Tarot Reading for the New Moon in Aquarius
7 of Cups
Deck used: Starchild Tarot
The 7 of Cups often represents our view of the World but through those rose-colored glasses, in seeing ourselves and others in a light that shines upon the good qualities and ignores the negative. This is also a card of having too many hands in the pot, in having numerous opinions in how we should approach something and what we should choose in making a decision. Too much outside influence can deter us away from our individuality in making choices that reflect upon what we truly wish to do and can lead us onto a path that is best suited in the eyes of others and not necessarily for ourselves.
The 7 of Cups says it is time to listen to your own heart, to allow your inner voice to speak through you, and to guide you into making the steps associated with your most authentic self. The New Moon in Aquarius ushers in influence that helps us align to our highest self, in making choices that are based on being aligned with our most authentic truth.

The New Moon in Aquarius has you believing in miracles, your higher purpose, and in divine intervention because you are witnessing fate acting out in your life. You have wished for a break from the turmoil you had experienced in the prior year, and things had shifted, allowing you now to know that whatever you endured, was because of fate, and that fate has taught you valuable lessons through those experiences. This is a time now to believe in more than yourself, Gemini.
The New Moon in Aquarius opens up a whole new world of opportunities and avenues you can take, and this is refreshing after dealing with a prior disappointment that may have left you heartbroken. You are able to welcome in a fresh start and a clean slate, being able to see the world around you with a different view which allows for you to be in a more creative mindset rather than a limited one.
The New Moon in Aquarius is calling for you to look at something a bit differently. What you had first thought as reality, is now being seen as an illusion. It’s like being completely head over heels within a relationship, or a career, but finding that once the fog has lifted, you are immersed in a world of toxicity and are not doing what serves your higher path.

Awaken that inner warrior within you and put it to work.
The New Moon in Aquarius wants you to get moving. During the Eclipse energy you may have come up with healthy solutions to ongoing issues which had rocked your world this month, and so it time to put those into action.
The New Moon in Aquarius empowers you with results from your hard efforts. While you have faced some turmoil in your life this month so far, you are not one to cower down or admit defeat – you are the sign of power, ruling Pluto and also Mars, which means you have two formidable energies on your side to use as you see fit. Remember who you are, Scorpio, and take your power back.
The New Moon in Aquarius confirms that the cycles you are enduring this month all resonate from prior lives, even your ancestral karma as well. It is time to break out of this cycle and to heal your genetic line. While the Full Moon had set the tone for this, the New Moon is asking for new habits be set and to prepare yourself for the new cycles you are to evolve even more from. Your ancestors are counting on you, Sag.
The New Moon in Aquarius brings you back to your roots. While the Full Moon & Eclipse energies had you acting a bit more wild than usual, this New Moon wants you to settle down. This might be a bit of a shocker as the messages are a bit opposing to the typical energies. You may want to focus on grounding, stepping outside and being one with nature, and also keep in mind to take note of the animal guides you receive and understand their messages.
While January has been much of a blessing to you, it does seem that there are some things which need to be broken down so you can make way for the new. These may be outdated ideals, or even old friendships which work against you as you are turning a new leaf and adopting a new mindset in what you need and desire from your relationships. The New Moon in Aquarius offers you a fresh new perspective, but only after you have reviewed the past and learned those lessons it had offered you.
The New Moon in Aquarius says it is time to break free from the systems which are limiting, and this could very well be the friends that are all hovered around you, giving their best advice on what to do within a situation or choice that is to be made. You need to listen to yourself, instead, and focus on what your heart is telling you.
On January 10th we have a powerful Full Moon and Lunar Eclipse in Cancer. For many, this is going to be that final purge of past experiences and behavioral patterns, or even defense mechanisms that now serve as blockages. This is also an extremely nurturing energy that helps set the tone for the habits of self-care we need to incorporate in our daily lives – extending far beyond how we treat ourselves, but also how we allow others to treat us as well.
Those who have done the work in healing their wounds will find this Lunar Eclipse extremely nurturing, and those who have not may find triggers everywhere. There may be a need to run and escape the world and its harshness, as that is Cancer’s major defense mechanism – to avoid the woes of the world and to retreat into their shell.
In a lunar eclipse, the Moon moves into the shadow of Earth cast by the Sun, making the Moon appear red, or to have an orange tinge.
Cancer is the sign of the mother, the home, and of nurturing our emotional bodies. The Lunar Eclipse is truly a gift to bestow that motherly energy onto what has pained us, so to gently heal and overcome the emotional or spiritual illness that our wounds had plagued us with.

8 of Swords
Deck used: Moonchild Tarot
The 8 of Swords is often a card that most readers resent because it represents a faulty perspective that is based on doom and gloom – basically stating that YOU are the cause of your problems and YOU are the one standing in your own way. This card encourages accountability over your happiness and releasing control over situations that are beginning to control you because of too much interference, resistance and that faulty perspective. When looking at the “glass half full” it instead appear half-empty and things are made out to be much worse than they actually are. This is a card of losing our power over situations, relationships, or even material objects that we are trying too hard to keep, or are not seeing the full-picture. I often like to explain this card as being stuck in quick sand – the more you kick and frantically move around trying to get out, the further you sink. When you pause and take a good look around, rather than focusing on the horror of the situation and focusing on possibilities, you realize there are ways you can get out and survive.
This relates to those wounds that we are allowing to control and poison our lives. Those defense mechanisms we had to take on so to no longer get hurt, are now serving as blockages. There may be even lifestyle choices or habit-patterns that had derived from licking those wounds, and so now they are promoting more toxicity and also the cycle of what we had endured to be projected onto others.
It is time for release – to let go of what pains us and to focus on how to heal.
The 8 of Swords also promotes counselors, spiritual healers, and a good strong shoulder to cry on – meaning that there is support and with that support comes a better perspective on how to truly look at world beyond the lens of pain and sorrow we had, and to instead see it in the beautiful light it truly has.

You are deeply contemplating during this Full Moon & Lunar Eclipse, and the things you consider, need to be kept to yourself. Have others watch what you do and be surprised by your actions to further their inspiration for you, rather than for them to be prepared enough to know what to expect.

Even if they don’t get it right away, they will in the future, and it may help them change their ways. While you may encounter a heartbreak this month as other cards had depicted, you have to find the strength within to move forward after you feel the wound and make the necessary changes needed to walk that separate path.

The Full Moon & Lunar Eclipse in Cancer is taking you back into the past, your far past, as your Tarotscope reading for this month has stated, this may be something that has occurred from a past life, and the cycle has kept you within an experience which no longer serves you for a very long time.

You might be looking back at the prior year and counting your blessings as you realize that those hardships you faced, trials you endured, and lessons you learned, all made the way things are now, and finally, things are good.

The Full Moon & Lunar Eclipse in Cancer is going to be pulling on those heart strings, Pisces. You are placed within a position where you feel obligated to make a choice which regards your heart – your love life. However, there is no rush, and so you need to take your time. Observe, objectively, of what is happening around you – read into the body language of others, in between the lines of what is said, and what is left unsaid. You want to see things the way you want to, but you need to instead see them for as they are.
